Maintaining and cleaning stone flooring

Whether you’re considering upgrading your home’s flooring or looking for ways to effectively clean your existing natural stone flooring, look no further than our expert tips and tricks for maintaining the beauty and longevity of your floors.

Natural stone flooring is a stunning and practical option that will add value and style to your property. Whether you choose marble, slate, limestone, or another type of natural stone, your flooring will be the centrepiece of your home for years to come.

One of the most significant benefits of natural stone flooring is its durability. Unlike other flooring materials that may wear out after a few years, natural stone can last for decades with the right care. It’s an investment that will pay off in the long run, as you won’t need to replace your floors as often. Additionally, natural stone floors are timeless, meaning they won’t go out of style, and you won’t need to update your flooring frequently to keep up with changing trends.


How to clean stone floors

Not only is natural stone flooring durable, but it’s also easy to keep clean. Unlike carpets or other types of flooring that trap dust and dirt, natural stone flooring can be swept or mopped easily, making it ideal for busy households with children or pets. Plus, with regular cleaning, natural stone will maintain its shine and continue to look as good as new for years to come.

However, when it comes to cleaning natural stone, it’s important to avoid harsh chemicals, as they can damage the surface. Instead, opt for a pH-neutral cleaner that’s specifically designed for natural stone. Make sure to test it on a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure it doesn’t cause any damage.

For more stubborn stains, such as oil or grease, it’s essential to act quickly. Blot the stain with a soft, clean cloth, and avoid rubbing or scrubbing, as this can cause further damage. If the stain remains, apply a poultice made of baking soda and water to draw out the stain. Leave it for 24 hours, then rinse with warm water and dry thoroughly.

Stay warm and cosy

A benefit of natural stone flooring is its ability to be paired with underfloor heating. With underfloor heating, your home will stay warm and cosy during the colder months. Unlike other flooring materials, natural stone is an excellent conductor of heat, making it a practical and efficient choice. Underfloor heating paired with natural stone flooring is the perfect combination for a comfortable and stylish home.
